Critic Reviews for Zombi 3 (Zombie Flesh Eaters 2)
If the phrase "extraordinarily bad" was ever fated to be applied to a movie, that movie is Zombi 3.
Not without its joys, but the film never reaches the same depths of poor taste that made Zombi 2 such a wretchedly good time.

Audience Reviews for Zombi 3 (Zombie Flesh Eaters 2)
What a huge mess Zombi 3 is: the dialog, the setting, the script, the suspense, and other things. Compared to Zombi 2, Zombi 3 is just off. The spirit is not in the. Lucio Fulci, who directed the previous film, returned to shoot the film in the Philippines. However, Fulci's ill and pesky producers would have turn in 70 minutes of footage. Bruno Mattei would step in and add footage and do a few re-shoots. The best thing about this film is the action, soldiers doing flips over furniture and zombies jumping from high places. Add the music, this film almost wins.
Poorly produced, scripted, non sense and !the worst thing is that it was directed in many scenes for the master, Lucio Fulci. This sequel is soooooooo bad that is HILARIOUS! There is a 4th installment but for sure I won't be looking for it.
Definitely do not watch this unless it's the DVD version because the whole time you will be driving yourself mad asking, "Which is Fulci and which is Bruno Mattei?" Mattei clears that up himself in the DVD extras, so you need to see that.
Apparently, Fulci was sick and disinterested when he made this movie and it shows in his segments. It's still good and superior to any zombie flix rolled out today, but it is not comparable to Zombi 2. Zombie fans must see this, as it shows a culmination of the ideas brought forth by genre directors of this era. We have the white suits of 'The Crazies', the zombies of "Zombi 2', the relationship scenes with talking zombies akin to 'Return of the Living Dead', and the final death scene is awesome, clearly influencing today's storylines and set design. It's best not to view this as a Fulci film, but as a prototypical action film of the zombie genre.
